It is a big recruiting time for programs across the college football world and, even if the (vast) majority of the focus is on 2018, that has not stopped Willie Taggart and the Florida State Seminoles from looking toward the future. In fact, Taggart and his staff have been in contact with a very famous family in Tallahassee lore and, on Thursday, word broke that the ‘Noles have tendered a scholarship offer to Shedeur Sanders.
Sanders is the son of legendary FSU and NFL cornerback Deion Sanders and, well, he is a member of the high school Class of 2021.
247Sports brings word that Sanders has offers from other programs like Baylor, Syracuse and Oregon at this early stage. Given the bloodlines involved, it is not a surprise that the 6-foot, 165-pound athlete prospect from Trinity Christian School in Cedar Hill (Tex.) would be in the mix, but it is high praise to receive an offer from a blue blood like Florida State.
The 2021 class feels like a lifetime away, but Sanders clearly has ability and if he continues to mature over the next handful of years, the ‘Noles could be picking up an impactful player, should he choose to sign on the dotted line in approximately 36 months.
